  5. Just read this book to my PreK-1st grade classes. Perfect! Thanks for sharing! =)


  6. Thanks! Now to find the book...

  7. This story can also be found online as a Reader's Theatre play!!

  8. perfect for this Christmas season!! Printing this as well as How Santa Lost His Job for my 3rd grader to work with. Thank you!!!

  9. I was looking for fun Christmas activities AND trying to find an activity for cause and effect- how perfect! Thank you!!

  10. These look so fun! I can only seem to print the PDF in size 16.54x11.69 which doesn't fit on my standard paper. Any ideas?

  11. You might need to try adjusting your printer settings. If you can't do that, look at my blog post for today. I redid these activities and put them together with the companion book so that they are all together. I put more cards on a page, so they should print differently. Let me know if you are still having trouble.

  12. Mary, i can't believe my luck! I am an elementary school counselor and i use this book to kick off career awareness. i am going into second grade today and needed a follow up activity. i googled follow up activites for the book and this was the first result. THIS is absolutely perfect since i was planning to complete a sequence review.

    1. What a great idea to use this for career awareness!
